to moderate this debate this evening. thank you to lynn university for welcoming us here and mr. president, it is good to be with you again. we were together at a humorous event a little bit earlier. it is nice to maybe be funny this time, not on purpose. we'll see what happens. this is obviously an area of great concern to the entire world and to america in particular which is to see a complete change in the structure and the environment in the middle east. with the arab spring came a great deal of hope that there would be a change towards more moderation and opportunity for greater participation on the part of women and in public life and in the economic life in the middle east. but instead we've seen in nation after nation a number of disturbing events. of course we see in syria, 30,000 civilians having been killed by the military there. we see in libya an attack apparently by i think we know now by terrorists of some kind against our people there, four people dead. our hearts and minds go to them. mali has been taken over, the northern part of mali, by al qaeda-type individuals. we hav
at the debates. >> i assume not just libya, syria, iran, what's going on with u.s. relations with russia, china, and of course the whole war on terror. lots of questions on that t so is he going through all these issues, issues he's dealt with in the fast four years. >> reporter: he is going through all those issues and as you know the campaign has been second retive about specifics when it comes to preparation going into the debates but clearly they understand that mitt romney will come out swinging on all of those issues that you have just listed. both not only the romney campaign and the republicans in general have been critical of this president not only on his domestic issues but hau he has been hand lilg all these issues overseas and the president preparing to counter that at the final debate. >>> thanks very much. let's dig deeper and discuss the state of the race and look ahead to monday's final presidential debate. we're joined by gloria borger and ryan liza. he's the new yorker mag zeen's washington correspondent. gloria, how important is this final debate to both of these candidates?

was placed on his life. >>> also, if china's growth slows, should the rest of us cheer? no. i'll explain. first, here's my take. sometimes convention wisdom is right. minutes after the debate, the pundits declared mitt romney the winner. he was. he seemed engaged, forceful, punchy. obama seemed passive, detached, and glum. but what's more significant than how romney said things is what he said. romney repeatedly insisted he was not advocating a big tax cut. in fact, he declared unequivocally that he would not cut taxes at all if they added to the deficit at all. now, as "the washington post" reporter checks out, for two years romney has been campaigning on a tax cut that would cost around $5 trillion over ten years. romney said he would eliminate deductions and cut spending to pay for it. he never offers details. he did say he would cut funding for public broadcasting which was 0.01% of federal spending in 2012. medicaid was 0.13%. romney also spoke in favor of regulations including much of the dodd/frank bill and he repeatedly held up as a model his health care plan in massachusetts whi

even if he used all of his hand surfaces and his legs, there is nothing there. there are no molecules up there for him to deflect. but when he started to slow down, that's when the tumble started to occur and that's when i got very concerned, and obviously he could use his hands, he could use his legs, use his body. all the things he learned, that saved his life. that experience saved him because he knew what to do. >> it really did. there's a chute opening there. he was able to make the pulls on that chute and make the rest of his descent there. extraordinary. chad meyers, thanks so much. we're going to bring people up to speed now on all the news, including this take place. leo chou, a former astronaut. thank you very much. we're going to talk to you again in a matter of minutes. you're now looking at images that were taken less than 30 minutes ago of felix baumgartner as he was making his descent from 23 miles above the earth in a free fall fashion before he was able to hit the right place in the atmosphere and have the wherewithall to open his chute, and there is the descent there

, everyone. so glad you're with us. i'm randi kaye. we start this morning with the shuttle "endeavour" final journey. a slow, very slow ride through the streets of los angeles that is still not other. remember, we're used to seeing the shuttle going about 17,000 miles per hour but two miles an hour this weekend may have been too ambitious for "endeavour." john zarrella is hanging out watching the crawl. >> reporter: many people have waited eight, nine hours for the shuttle to arrive, but when it did, it was worth it. it had the road to itself, a parade of one. in tinseltown where seeing stars ho-hum, "endeavour" made everyone starry-eyed. cameras snapped. people looked on in awe as "endeavour" came into view. this was the first viewing area outside the old former arena where the los angeles lakers once played. and "endeavour" was way ahead at that point but it wouldn't last. outside the second designated viewing area, some people stood and waited for more than eight hours for it to arrive and when it did, it was well after dark. the most difficult part was more difficult than expected.

ways, one, he'll limit the tax breaks. he'll spur economic growth because people can use that money that they'll save this taxes. it's not entirely clear how much economic growth that will produce. what is clear is that the measly 1.3% of economic growth that they achieved in the second quarter this year isn't enough to make up for the romney shortfall, and with the u.s. economy forecasted to grow by about 3% in 2013 and 2014, romney's plan, as attractive as it sounds, is in doubt. kevin hasseth is an economic adviser. kevin, romney's plan seems to assume that the simple act of lowering taxes will generate enough growth to raise the revenue to pay for the steep cost of those cuts. a lot of economists disagree with that notion, the classic chicken and egg scenario. i spoke with secretary larry m sumners a few weeks ago and he can't get it to work, either. >> the reality is that every expert that's looked at it has found that cutting taxes by 20% costs $5 trillion. >> let's just get down to this. we understand this there will be certain revenues that will come in, there will be cert

're not using to pay taxes. it's not entirely clear that that will happen. if it does, it's not entirely clear how much economic growth that will produce. what is clear is that the 1.3% economic growth that u.s. achieved in this second quarter of this year isn't enough to make up for the romney short fall. and with the u.s. economy forecasted to grow by about 3% in 2013 and 2014, romney's plan, as attractive as it sounds, is in doubt. kevin hasset is an economic adviser for the mitt romney campaign and author of some of the economic plans. kevin, romney plans seem to assume that simple act of lowering taxes will generate enough growth to raise the revenue to pay for the steep cost of those cuts. but a lot of economists agree with that notion. it's a classic chicken and egg scenario. i talked to larry summers a couple days ago. he can't get the math to work either. >> it's easy to have an attractive tax plan if your campaign staff can make it up. the reality is that every expert who's looked at it found that cutting taxes by 20% costs $5 trillion. >> okay. let's get down to this. we understand

time to be completed. that will tell us with certainty what transpired, but our current best assessment based on the information that we have at present is that in fact, what this began as was a spontaneous, not a premeditated response to what had transpired in cairo. in cairo, as you know, a few hours earlier, there was a violent protest that was undertaken in reaction to this very offensive video that was disseminated. >> the spontaneous, not premeditated is the important part. that was four days after raw intelligence was available contradicting that. three days after the intelligence community may have apprised both lawmakers and the white house that such intelligence, preliminary though it may have been, in fact existed. so why then did susan rice say that? an intelligence official tells us she was working off a set of cia talking points. several senior administration officials tell us ambassador rice's use of the word spontaneous came directly from an assessment coming from congress and was not edited by the white house. but keeping them honest the white house had been in frequent

"starting point" begins right now. that's why they've been preparing with their debate camps. they will be focusing broadly on all voters but in particular undecided voters who after hearing all the convention speeches and seeing the television ads are trying to make up their minds. for the president that means talking about the economy, how things are still difficult but the economy is i a much better place and heading in a much better direction. for romney it will be talking about the president's failed promises and perhaps a preview of that we saw yesterday with the help of vice president biden while he was out on the campaign trail. he was describing how middle class americans will be hurt under mitt romney. and then he sort of put -- framed their plight over the last four years this way. >> this is deadly earnest. how they can justify, how they can justify raising taxes on the middle class has been buried the last four
presidents spent for theirs. the president's retails for $15,600 and mitt romney got back to us and town and country they say, you are wrong. his $3,000 tag is a $300 nixon watch and we heard back from the president's team he said he had a watch from the secret service which was a gift. but he owns another watch which is a tag but we will be watching. anderson cooper 360 starts now. >> good evening. we begin tonight with a mother who is asking the toughest question a mother can. why is my son dead? that is all pat smith wants to know. her son, sean smith one of the americans killed in the attack in benghazi on september 11th. a month after, she watched her son's casket come off a cargo plane, a month after she says promised her answers, she says she is still waiting to hear. still waiting for answers. waiting for a call. congress held hearings today. we'll talk about that shortly, but first, my conversation with sean smith's mom, pat. i appreciate you being with us. i'm so sorry for your loss. what do you want people tonow about sean? >> so god. he was my only child. he was good
and wrong in america are faced with a question that they and we and generations before us have been asking and answering in many different ways. how much does skin color matter? if you think it's a closed book, well, abigail fisher may have thought so, too. until she got a rejection letter from the university of texas in 2008. race is one of several factors that ut considers in applicants who don't get in automatically based on their grades. abigail says her race may have cost her a texas education. and today as we speak, the highest court in the land is hearing her very case. it is the supreme court's first so-called affirmative action case in a full decade almost. and the outcome of this case could reach far beyond college admissions. cnn's senior legal analyst and an expert on the supreme court, jeffrey toobin, joins me this hour live from san francisco. and jeff, before i tap into your extraordinary wealth of expertise on the supreme court and get your insight, i want to lay some groundwork and let our colleague, joe johns, come in first and tell everyone just more about how this case
. and dr. sanjay gupta will join us and singer sarah brightman is our guest. our starting point is piecing together what happened in benghazi. the state department now giving a very detailed account of last month's attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi in libya. the house oversight committee will weigh in on security failings during a hearing that's happening later today. and the state department is now saying that the attack was not a spontaneous off shoot of protests. they say u.s. and libyan security personnel in benghazi were out manned, a reasonable security presence would not have fended off the assault. u.s. ambassador cyst center stevens and three other americans were killed in that attack. senior international correspondent arwa damon went to the consulate ruins to help piece together exactly what happened. >> reporter: amid the ashes, soot, and debris, remnants of the life that was. it's all that remained in the unguarded u.s. consulate compound in benghazi when cnn arrived on the scene three days after the spleptember 11th atta. eyewitnesses told us it was a complex assault.
, and thank you for joining us, i'm back home after spending most of this past week chasing down answers in that meningitis outbreak. over there, that is the necc, compounding facility, and back here, the recycling facility, essentially that looks like a dump. you'll see what else i uncovered ahead, pretty remarkable stuff. also ahead, sugar, we talk about it all the time. well, now it is the subject of a test regarding a cartoon, with pretty graphic stuff. >>> and hormone replacement therapy. i'll tell you this issue confuses women more than about just any other. i have a new announcement on the study. >>> but we begin with the meningitis outbreak, under the microscope. the plot thickens on the deadly and growing meningitis outbreak that is affecting now so much of the country. at the center of it all, contaminated steroid injections of 14,000 people in 23 states may have received. now, they were made by necc, a compounding pharmacy in massachusetts that is licensed to distribute drugs in all 50 states. compound pharmacies were established so that the pharmacists could make custom speci
whether they can use contraceptives or not and i don't believe employers should tell someone whether they should have contraceptives or not. >> he strongly supported federal legislation to restrict access to birth control and restated that when it briefly came into question. >> jim heath, a reporter for a tv station in ohio just tweeted that mitt romney told him, he does not not support the blent amendment that would empower insurers to deny health coverage they find morally objectionable. >> i didn't understand his question. of course i support the blunt amendment. >> that was back in february when he was battling for the blunt amendment. it failed but as late as august, he was still pushing the idea behind it, allowing companies to restrict insurance coverage for birth control for certain reasons. tuesday night, apparently, he did a 180. when asked yesterday whether he did flip-flop, he said, not in any way. she went on to call the issue not really the point to most women out there. as we showed you, though, the polling suggests that it is, if you believe this poll, which may be wh
the year. here it is in 1994 running again ted kennedy for the u.s. senate seat in massachusetts. >> i believe that abortion should be safe and legal in this country. i have since the time that my mom took that position when she ran in 1970 as a u.s. senate candidate. >> now fast forward to last year. here's mitt romney trying to capture the gop presidential nomination. >> what i'd like to see happen would be for the supreme court to say, look, we're going to overturn row v. wade and return to the states the authority to design whether they want abortion on or not state by state. that's how it was before roev. wade. i'm pro-life. >> less than two weeks ago he spoke to the editorial board of "the des moines register" and he seemed more unclear on the issue. he said there's no legislation with regards to abortion that i'm familiar with that would become part of my agenda. so, if mitt does win and he does set an agenda, what will it include with regards to abortion? this literally could turn the entire election. barbara comstock is a romney campaign senior adviser. good to see you again.
.m. on the west. glad you're with us. we start with new evidence of security concerns in libya and warnings from a murdered ambassador. chris stevens sounded the alarms before he and three other americans were killed in the deadly consulate attack in benghazi. republican leaders in the house have released dozens of documents in the investigation. 166 pages, e-mails and cables between the state department and people in the field. those house leaders say it shows that the obama administration ignored security problems. but obama administration officials say the documents don't tell the whole story. so let's bring in our intelligence correspondent suzanne kelly, who has been going through all of this. what new details are you finding in the cables and the e-mails? >> reporter: the cables certainly give us more detail into the thinking of ambassador stevens in the months, weeks and even hours before his death. for example, we know that just hours before the attack that killed him and three other americans, he expressed concern over the rising security threats in benghazi and in nearby town where is
the line? we know the campaign used this as ground in the election. we have this as a source of strength where they are ahead of these two battle ground states. these are the two strongest right now. ohio right behind and romney doing well in the west. the question is you have only so many days left. where do you drop the plains. where does governor romney and ryan go. just as important or more important, campaigns have to make decisions and the obama campaign recently borrowed $15 million. money is not scarce. these guys have raised a boat load of money and not taking public financing and not subject to caps, but you are at a point where you have to make consequential decisions and every decision is make or break. we are talking to democrats and they will wait and see what happens in the 48 hours with the numbers. if the answer is no and florida and north carolina are moving his way, they think the smart thing to do is scale back and build a fire wall in the midwest. >> you have done commercials for candidates. how does it work logistically and how often are they polling and how much co

you help us find folks? they brought us binders full of women. >> that's somewhat silly phrase. here's the totally serious context and why it's important to break it down. women may decide this election as you probably know. president obama's formerly big advantage appears to be gone. the polling shows a bigger gender gap in president obama's favor. whatever size of it actually is, mitt romney can successful narrow that gap, that would make the president's road to re-election very, very difficult, nearly impossible. campaigning in virginia, romney said the president has failed america's women. he was touting his own record claiming he went to a number of women's groups and said can you help us find folks? keeping them honest, that's not quite true. there's a problem with the time line. the group in question, the massachusetts govern appointments project, mass gap, actually approached him. they put out a statement today saying, i quote, prior to the 2002 gubernatorial election, mass gap approached the campaigns of candidates shannon o'brien and mitt romney. they went to him and his de
